Hopefully, eventually- pretty please.


Derby says 26" rims might be available in six months if his business takes off. Let us keep our fingers crossed!

ya I'm stoked, I wonder if DT Swiss will make the 240s rear hub with a regular 6 bolt disc flange, and maybe straight pull spoke flanges.

Rims as wide as they should be.
I think my skinniest MTB rim is 36mm.
Most of my bikes run 39mm.

Now the Derby version is just pretty damned light for what it is.

Ridiculously light. I know Sti didn't have any hardware bolted up, but damn. Lighter than the tube that came in fat wallaby bike.

The next step in weight (and noise) reduction for my wheelset. Velocity Convertible hub, 263 grams, 135mm, QR, 11 speed compatible; 85 gr. less than the Velocity Road Disc Hub it's replacing.

Hopefully tubeless is going to work with my tires for more weight savings.

I have ordered my 2nd Derby rim, they are just great. Vice Grips likes the looks of them, too. I will have a slightly used (a bit scratched) Light Bicycle rim for sale then. Any takers? It will be priced right. ;)

26 inch rims with angle drilled spoke holes.

Instant engagement & noiseless Onyx Racing sprag clutch hub will go on the rear, and budget friendly Hope on the front.

Wow, those look great, both the rear hub and the rims. What bike are they for?

I want more tire volume, but there's not enough clearance on the current frame & fork for 2inch + tires in 650B. For this upcoming build I took the time to remove resin ridges touching spoke holes, which were created by bladder wrinkles during manufacture. Although it didn't have any functional effect, it kind of bugged me that some nipples on the current Derby wheels had less than ideal exit angles because ridges wouldn't allow even nipple seating or restricted spoke head movement.

The front wheel is rolling; more delays for the rear wheel build.

The Onyx hub with clutch RD is like riding a fixed gear. There's an interesting sensation when accelerating after coasting, and starts from stop; no engagement feedback.

Soon I'll be celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the Derby rims. Today I re-taped front wheel with the excellent Kapton tape. Originally I built it with Gorilla tape but it seems that the G glue does not like long term exposure to sealant much, and I've found evidence of sealant getting in the rim cavity, too. I am really glad I built the wheel with brass nipples.

The rims is scarred by many battles in rocks but structurally sound. I really like the grip this rim gives me with 2.3-2.4 tires at low 20s PSI. They just grip until one day when they don't and it's time for a change. I have been planning replacing the worn WTB Vigilante for a while but a sidewall cut made me finally do it. I'm gonna post a picture of a new tire in the 27.5 thread.
